The other night was a serious “girl-on-the-edge-needs-chocolate” kind of night. I toyed with making the Pioneer Woman’s chocolate sheet cake (don’t worry, that will come shortly, I can assure you!) or a delicious chocolate cake I found in another of my favorite blogs, Joy the Baker – but I decided to take one last peek at my saved recipes from other cooking blogs and stumbled across S’more bars from Noodle Nights and Muffin Mornings – bingo. Anything with chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker crumbs sounded utterly perfect to me, so on with the S’more bars!
These were delicious – even hubby, whose respones to my baked goods are usually along the lines of, “yeah, its pretty good” loved these and made a point to tell me over and over again how much he enjoyed them! I sent the rest of the bars to work with him the next day and he came home with rave reviews. Bullseye!
